It's that time of year again. For most people that time is New Years but for me this is the start of a new year. A new year of school, church commitments and other activities that will soon consume our already chaotic life. Now would I change a thing, probably not. Well maybe I would change my lack of self control I have when things don't go smooth! *insert big sigh here* My goals for this "new" year are simple and complex all rolled into one! I know right sounds easy!  I hope that sharing my goals with you keeps me accountable for accomplishing them. So please feel free to throw me under the bus and rub in my face when I am not staying on track. (you may have to remind me of this post, in order to not cause a tiff in our friendship when you totally dog me!) 

My Goals for the 2010-2011 year:
* enter at least 1 or 2 craft shows
* market Simply-Created more
* read through the Matthew, Mark, and John in the bible
* grow my nails out! 
* make and actually sell items on Etsy
* say NO to two opportunities presented to me
* Lose 25 pounds (setting 8lb goals)

Okay there you have it. My Goals for this year. Some seem easy, some are already in the works and others seem impossible to me. Although I am little anxious looking over my list I know that God is there holding my right hand and guiding me in the direction that will bring him Glory. As a family we have just chosen our "family verse" and it is so helpful in the is time of transition for me. 
Our verse is Proverbs 3:5-8 (NIV) "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight". And can I be honest I am trusting, I am trusting that He will help me find a balance in my life, financial blessing, and a stronger faith than I have ever had. Am I "really"trusting, yes, Am I still a little scared, Yes. It's a process and I will continue to work on this with The Lord as my teacher.
